Adoption of Spinal Nonfusion Technologies Doubled in One Year
Date:4/24/2008

From Q4 2006 to Q4 2007, artificial disc and dynamic stabilization nonfusion segments skyrocketed, according to Millennium Research Group's US

Spine Marketrack(TM) data

WALTHAM, Mass., April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium Research Group's (MRG) US Spine Marketrack(TM) results indicate that a growing number of facilities are adopting nonfusion technologies. Rising patient and surgeon awareness and new product releases starting in Q3 2007 added to this growth and will facilitate ongoing increases in the market going forward.

In Q4 2006, just over 6% of hospitals surveyed performed artificial disc procedures, but by Q4 2007, this proportion doubled to over 13%. Similarly, the number of facilities that performed dynamic stabilization treatments also doubled from 10% to 20% over the same time frame.

Products like Medtronic Spinal and Biologics' Prestige-ST and the X-STOP, Synthes Spine's ProDisc-C and ProDisc-L, DePuy Spine's Charite, and Zimmer Spine's Dynesys, as well as new devices entering the market, are experiencing growing adoption rates. Manufacturers are increasingly training surgeons on nonfusion technologies, such as artificial discs and dynamic stabilization devices, facilitating this adoption. Surgeons are finding these technologies are more in tune with the body because they preserve motion as opposed to fusion technologies, which result in reduced movement of the spine.

"Patients are excited about nonfusion technology," says Kevin Flewwelling, Manager of MRG's Orthopedics division. "Not only do they benefit from increased motion preservation, but the recovery times are shorter, enabling them to return quickly to their regular lifestyles."

Millennium Research Group will be attending the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Meeting in Chicago on April 28-30. To meet MRG at the AANS or get a preview of US Spine Marketrack(TM) data, please contact MRG.
